The Spencer County Prosecutor’s Office has unveiled a newly completed website for the Prosecutor’s Office.
Spencer County Prosecutor Dan Wilkinson says the Office has been without a public website since the end of 2010 and one goal he had after taking office was to establish a website that would provide the public and law enforcement with useful information about programs and services provided by the Prosecutor’s Office.
He says the site has been a work in progress since January, but is pleased his office can finally announce that the site has been completed and is available for public use.
The site contains general information about the workings of the criminal justice system, using the bad check collection program, obtaining of no contact orders, the victim assistance program, infraction deferral and pre-trial diversion programs, and child support enforcement.
The site also has a password protected area designed to provide useful information and updates to local law enforcement and submission forms
where users can contact the Prosecutor’s Office to request information or get answers to questions.
Also the new site relaunches the Spencer County Anonymous Crime Tip Line.
Wilkinson says, the tip line is an important tool for the public to know there is a place they can safely and anonymously report information about crime in their neighborhoods and wants to make the general public more aware the service is available and strongly encourages the public to use it.
The public can call (800) 615-6088 to report information by phone. During normal business hours the phone line is answered by staff in the Prosecutor’s Office and after hours callers are prompted to leave a message. All submissions are completely anonymous and are not identified or traced unless the individual chooses to identify themselves.
Citizens are reminded that the tip line is not for reporting emergency situations. Emergencies should always be reported by calling 911.
Anyone with questions or needing assistance are encouraged to contact the Prosecutor’s Office at (812) 649-6038 or by going to the Contact Us page at spencoprosecutor.org.
